Located in a secluded olive grove on the outskirts of the colorful chaos that is Marrakech, Peacock Pavilions is an indulgent alternative to a traditional riad.
Peacock Pavilions is a hand built, artisanal give-back property. Featured in dozens of magazines and television shows, the hotel is a favorite location for travelers in the know, fashion shoots, yoga and creative retreats, and celebrations of all kinds. Designed by architect Chris Montague, and exquisitely decorated by Maryam Montegue, Peacock Pavilions will enchant all your senses.
The lush estate is comprised of three pavilions: the Main Pavilion, the Atlas Pavilion and the Medina Pavilion, as well as a unique bungalow plus outdoor areas.
The Main Pavilion, surrounded by hundreds of rose bushes, is home to several of the facilities shared spaces: the grand reception area, with domed ceiling and fireplace, a small library (for your quiet comfort), the Souk (shop) with a hand curated collection available for purchase, an indoor dining space, and a covered terrace, where most breakfasts and lunches are served.
The Atlas Pavilion includes two guest bedrooms, each with glamorous bathroom, a spacious salon, exquisitely decorated with comfortable couches and dining area, as well as patios and rooftop terraces. A mini bar is available with wine, beer, soft drinks and snacks for purchase.
The Medina Pavilion has three guest bedrooms, each with their own stunning bathroom, a grand salon with soaring ceilings and fireplace, and a fully equipped kitchen stocked with wine, beer, soft drinks and snacks. On the 1,000 square foot rooftop terrace we will enjoy a gorgeous movie night, under the magical Moroccan starry sky.
Nestled in an old olive grove with a magnificent view of the Atlas Mountains, Peacock Pavilons is an 8.5 acre private estate.
Our boutique hotel features a pool, outdoor gym, outdoor cinema, yoga/activities pavilion, and a painted dining tent. Peacock Pavilions was designed to promote wellbeing and fun, and Samira and Rhia want you to enjoy every bit of life here.
Cuisine on site: The cuisine on site is from scratch, delicious and Moroccan, using fresh ingredients from the hotel’s organic gardens and local markets. Selection is seasonal, and each meal is made with care, just for us.
Breakfasts (all included) – daily made bread from the village’s communal bread oven (rebuilt as part of our charity, Project Soar), homemade jams, eggs, or muffins, yoghurt, fruit, just squeezed juice, coffee and tea.
Lunches – light and fresh (soups, salads, quiches, etc.) served with cookies or fruit for dessert.
Dinners – three delicious courses, served by candle light, ending in an herbal infusion from the garden to help you sleep.
Vegetarian diets are welcome, and food allergies are accommodated to the best of their abilities. Please inform us on your guest questionnaire, when you register.
We have done all the planning for you! You just register, and enjoy a trip of a lifetime!
